It has been a while since we’ve seen Klay Thompson on a basketball court. A pair of significant injuries caused him to miss each of the last two seasons. If not for the Achilles’ injury that caused him to miss all of last season, Klay would likely be headed to Tokyo, attempting to win another Olympic gold medal.
Instead, he is continuing to work his way back for next season. And he’s also doing this.
Yes, that is Klay Thompson hitting over-the-shoulder shots while wearing a Washington State basketball warm-up jersey.
Earlier this week Klay was on Instagram Live talking about Stubblefields.

Klay: “Mike’s used to get crazy. They had nothing like that at UW. Y’all don’t go hard at UW. Come on you know this. Win or lose, Cougs is boozing. Win or lose, Cougs booze.” pic.twitter.com/aGvNz6lqI0
Klay is also in the very recently released Space Jam 2.
So in case you forgot, Klay remains the best.

It was a big weekend for Jansen, too. The former Freeman High School and Washington State University tennis standout defeated 11th-ranked Jillian Braverman of California 11-5, 8-11, 11-2 for the women’s singles championship for her second pro title after capturing her first the previous weekend.
